DETROIT — Jimmy Shane and J. Michael Kelly have been locked in a deck-to-deck battle in each of their heats this season. So why should Sunday’s H1 Unlimited final in Detroit be any different?
DETROIT - Jimmy Shane grabbed lane one before the start and used it to hold off a determined J. Michael Kelly to win the UAW/GM Spirit of Detroit HydroFest on Sunday.
DETROIT - Jimmy Shane steered the U-1 Oberto/Miss Madison to a close win in Heat 1A and then watched as several of his closest competitors shot themselves in the foot on the first day of the UAW/GM Spirit of Detroit Hydrofest on Saturday.
A penalty may have taken away Jimmy Shane’s last win, but the U-1 Oberto/Miss Madison driver still enters this weekend’s H1 Unlimited race in Detroit with a healthy lead in the National High Points.
The U-1 Oberto/Miss Madison returned home from Seattle on Sunday night and the crew began work on Monday in preparation for the next race in Detroit in two weeks.
Yet another controversy decided the outcome of an H1 Unlimited race and, in the process, tainted one of the best final heats in recent memory.
